Answer: 
WiDi and Miracast do not work on this TV. Plus, in order to use smart share, you need the silly app which is only supported on LG phones. However, it is not supported on the Nexus 4, oddly enough.

Answer: 
WIDI is NOT supported even though the answer says it is. I own the TV and could not make it work and asked LG via chat and they said WIDI is not supported on Google TV.

Will WIDI be supported in a future firmware update?

Could somebody officially confirm on this ? because I was reading some reviews on this TV and found some of them were able to connect to their home theater using Audio Return Channel (ARC) through HDMI ?

Answer: 
I don't think so. Nowhere in the documentation states ARC and on other LG TVs, ARC is labeled on the HDMI port. There is also no ARC settings I have been able to find. If you want to send audio to an A/V, then you need to use an optical cable. My setup is, all devices go to the TV (HDMI) , and audio goes out to A/V via optical. I tried all devices to A/V and out to TV, but it does not change the source (audio) when you go to Google TV and play music or youtube videos. Hope that helps!

I just bought this TV and this remote is great but is there a option to get the backlit remote so that I can type in night time.

while watching tv during night I have dim lights and its really hard to find the keys like "., " etc as they are in tiny red font and no backlit.

Answer: 
Google remote app is good but that is NOT specific to this model TV, I mean it doesn't have controls for the 3D related features that TV has.

I see there is another LG remote Control App in the Google Play Store (And also in the Apple app store) but that doesn't support this model (55GA7900). Why didn't LG remote control app does not support this model?

It would really be nice to be able to use a large wireless QWERTY keyboard instead of your small keyboard. Using any wireless keyboard and mouse manufacturer.

Yes. You can plug in the sender RF on the USB of the TV and pair it with your keyboard and mouse. Even my media keys (stop/playprevious/next) worked as well.

While I have not tested this, reviewers on Amazon have confirmed they could use other bluetooth keyboards. I don't know if they had to attach a bluetooth dongle to one of the usb ports.
